The story of Rob and Maudi de Boer starts when they are 16 years of age. They were each others first great loves. But because of Rob’s heroine addiction, the relationship ended. Theft was the one thing Rob did to fund his addiction. He even threatened a dealer and a taxi driver which eventually led to a prison sentence.

Maudi left the Netherlands for Greece and fell in love with a Greek. But when she got pregnant he decided he did not want the baby. After a forced abortion Maudi went back to the Netherlands. As she tried to get her life back in order she got help from someone she did not expect to help her. And God did not let her go after that.

Because of Maudi, even Rob found his way to God en eventually his way back to Maudi. At this moment they are both the pastors of the MCI Church in Utrecht. They run the rented church together with their children. But they still have one dream: to buy their own church.

How far will they go to make their dream come true?
